A Baltimore School for the Arts alumna, Laura Halm received her B.F.A. in dance from the Juilliard School in 2002. She has had the pleasure of performing with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and as a soloist with the Ballett des Saarländischen Staatstheater in Saarbrücken, Germany. Over the course of her performance career, she has danced masterworks by contemporary choreographers Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Nacho Duato, and Johan Inger, among many others. Highlights of her career include performing the title role of “Anastasia” in Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Anastasia, the “Black Swan” in Marguerite Donlon’s Schwannensee–aufgetaucht, and the “Red Woman” in Inger’s Walking Mad. In 2014, Stijn Celis created the role of “Solveig” for Halm in his interpretation of Peer Gynt. As a member of the University of Washington’s Chamber Dance Company in 2016, she performed Lucinda Childs’ groundbreaking post-modern solo Carnation.
